    Re: Russian Lullaby (Irving Berlin)

    Re: Johnny, Tiny & Jethro

    Yep, that's what he did, Scotter. Also, he tunes it as a mandola (C, G, A, D). More than you want to know about Johnny's mandolin: http://www.emando.com/players/Gimble.htm

    Stroboclip has been great for me. Have to use it properly though; it’s a sensitive instrument. Somebody mentioned it wouldn’t read one course of strings ... for instance, striking hard with a pick...

    John has passed. I assume this all about the site he left behind, and I assume your confusion is due to the fact that the Facebook post comes in his name on his Facebook account. It’s probably family...

    I've had no problem selling, only use Cafe Classifieds, eBay & Facebook. All three get results, sometimes only one or the other, for quick sales. Key is to make a video that can include showing &...

    Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    Whatever type of instrument you are selling, if you have a decent case for that instrument, no "special" box is required. Just a good, sturdy box that is a bit larger than the case, and good packing...

    Re: Playing notation G/F#

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    “What I use” thread ... spot on.

    I use two kinds of tuners. Cheap tuners for when accuracy is practically meaningless. This is not so often, but there are moments. Brand doesn’t matter. They’re...
